Good Thursday morning everyone! Well, we are snowed under (AGAIN!) here in Virginia. I tell ya, this is getting very old and I am fighting hard to not let the winter blues get to me! I keep telling myself we only have about a month of bad weather left and then it will be all over, but I'm beginning to wonder if I am going to be able to maintain what little sanity I have left before spring gets here! Anybody else feeling this way or is it just me??
I didn't post on Whatcha' Working on Wednesday yesterday because what I am working on right now is a surprise for my faithful followers! I am now at 150 followers and in honor and celebration of that, I will be doing a small giveaway for Saint Patrick's Day. Now, I know a lot of you don't decorate for St. Patty's Day but just humor me here, o.k.? LOL!! I will be posting more details about this giveaway in the next week or two, so be sure to be watching! Also, be sure to pop over and visit Leslie at My Country Home to see what wonderful things everybody else is working on.
Now, on to Thursday's Tip of the Day! I'm sitting here enjoying my cup of coffee flavored with yummy vanilla latte creamer and thought about the humble coffee filter. Such a simple invention that doesn't often get the credit it deserves! I have seen a lot of crafters use these paper filters to create some awesome crafts, but did you know that they are also great for warming individual cookies, doughnuts, and rolls in the microwave? Eat right out of the filter ~ no dishes to wash! Now that's right up my alley as I don't have a dishwasher (yet!) besides my two hands and I hate to wash dishes!! I guess that stems from the fact that since I was big enough to stand on a kitchen chair to reach the sink, washing dishes was one of my daily chores as a child. I hated it then and I hate it now!
Here's another great use for these wonderful filters: when you repot a house plant, place a coffee filter in the bottom of the pot. This keeps the soil from falling thru the drainage holes! Clever, huh?
Well, that's all I have for today. I will probably not be venturing out of the house today due to all the snow and I'm off work tomorrow (yay!) so I see lots of crafting in my immediate future! I hope everyone has a great Thursday! Stay safe and warm!
Until next time. . .
